"Some Los Angeles Apartments is a remake of the original book by the American artist Ed Ruscha, published in 1965. The occasionally grainy and unfocused Google-pictures in Jóhannsson's book give, however, associations to a theme that in one sense has become all-pervasive and considerably more relevant today than in Ruscha's era: surveillance. Google's enthusiasm for documentation is today a part of a literally quite different, and more extensive and disagreeable, picture universe than the Ruscha-photographs were, spread as they were in a low quantity amongst art enthusiasts."
